C.J. Ham Makes Switch to Full-Time Fullback. I like this kid, he tore it up last pre-season. If he is going to make the 53 man roster, it's at fullback or if a RB is injured. I would like to see him stick around...

So the Vikings are one of teams that  FA WR Floyd is interested in signing with, but will have to wait until he is released from Jail saywha. Where he is serving a 120 jail sentence for DUI and Yes, WR Floyd is a legit deep threat !!!! greg1

If he comes cheap and a 1 year deal its worth it IMO.....Jail time can change a person and hopefully it has changed/scared Floyd.......The 9th is the day and I think you see a few guys being signed.......I know the picks can go as early as the 3rd round so will see where we get some......

I was looking at depth chart of Vikings in regard to WR'S and as it stands, 6 rookies/ 0 experience,( Bohringer,  Fruechte both in 2nd year)  and starters Theilen, Diggs, Treadwell and in the shadows is Wright and along with Bohringer, Fruechte will not make team  ( no room )!!! 2c

A WR hungry tom prove himself and get a new contract....awesome...wake up Treadwell.......Vikings should have a great new look......now we just need the OC to play the game and be aggressive...especially in the red zone...no excuses this year ...we were pathetic last year and never got aggressive enough...that has to change

As I checked up on NFL rules regarding DUI, which falls under " substance abuse policy ". It says for 1st infraction a fine of one games check or up to 50,000 can be imposed and continued violations will result in suspensions. Vikings and WR Floyd might have got lucky !!! yeahright

I was wondering with the signing of QB Case Keenum, are Vikings thinking of releasing QB Heinicke (Knucklehead)? I do not think you can put QB Heinicke  on practice squad and I am sure he would be gone quickly if done so. Maybe Vikings intend on carrying 3 QB'S, either way I thought QB Heinicke played well in the 2016 preseason and sort of has that gun slinger attitude !!!! 2c

Mike Williams was rated #1 and his stats are 6'3/225- 40 time-4.56, rec - 177/2727 yards, 21 TD'S, no rushing, Huh
Stacey Coley                                                6'1/195-40 time-4.34, rec-166/2218  yards, 20TD'S  Rushing-8/125, 1 TD.
Rodney Adams                                              6'1/190-40 time-4.44, rec-136/1976 yards, 16 TD'S, Rushing-40/375, 7 TD.   
Not saying their are better, but I think both will contribute this year Go Vikings !!! grin1

Vikings sign former Bear NT Will Sutton  6'1/303 to a 3 year contract and apparently  DT Floyds recovering is not going. Slowly but surely Vikings adding depth to D line !!!! grin1

This is going to be interesting..... I personally don't see the Vikings pushing to get Teddy on the field and because of the injury and when he returns the Vikings may get another year from him because of a certain clause......not sure of all the details but it will be brought up as the season approaches......

In your life time XF.............Vikes have been to the Dance 4 times.

I do not have too tell you the outcomes.

Houston Oilers NEVER went......BUT won the AFL once in early 60's.

Titans have been once and lost by ONE f-ing yard to St.Loius......that was painful.

I know you want one and so do I........good luck to us both.

Titans vs the Vikings at SB 52.......we might have to have a bet if that happens..... ber

According to Darren Wolfson - Michael Floyd's house arrest has reportedly been transferred from Arizona to Minnesota so he can participate in offseason workouts with the Minnesota Vikings. This is very good news...

This is great to hear and I hope QB Bridgewater does make full recovery Tushay, yet I think Vikings rushed QB Bridgewater into offense to early and where well on their way to destroying another QB and now with Bradford in, QB Bridgewater can sit back and learn offense and also from a experienced QB in Bradford. The QB I feel will take us to SB is QB Bradford and I feel our record last year would have been worse, for QB Bradford was making throws that QB Bridgewater would have not thrown, Go Vikings !!!  greg1

The season has not even stated and the so called sports analyst have Vikings finishing 3rd in NFC North , despite that winners record in NFC North was 10-6 - 2 game difference ( Vikings 8-8) and 2nd was 9-7 (8-8) 1 game all Vikings have to do is win the close ones and score in RZ. The additions will give QB Bradford the chance to do just that !!! greg1

Rick Spielman released the following statement:

“As the Vikings begin OTA practices, Coach Zimmer will be taking time away from the team to dedicate to recovering from eye surgery and restoring his health. We all agree Mike’s health is the priority and we believe rest and recovery are in his best interest for the long term. We anticipate Mike back on the field in a few weeks.”

I know Zimmer hates to miss any practice time, I am sure he is under strict doctor's orders...

I hope our Viking Leader Coach Zimmer makes a full recovery, now I think our Viking team will be just fine with DC Edwards and OC Shurmur. !!!! greg1
